I live on the Woodgate development in Whalley Range. I bought the property as a plot from the developer whom had a prior arrangement with Solitaire. The service I have received since Nov 2004 had been of a very poor standard. Calls are ignored. Communal arrears are not cleaned satisfactorily. The gardens are not maintained. And to add insult to injury Solitaire has recently increased the annual fees by a phenomenal amount considering inflation/credit crunch - clearly the directors of this business are "getting rich" for zero effort. Unimpressed!
